Black Diamonds are now widely desired for use in premium designer jewelry. Whilst not being colorless like their more popular namesakes, Black Diamond nonetheless offers a sparkling brilliant like appearance from it black ink like facetted surface.

Natural Black Diamonds are extremely rare in nature, some Black Diamonds have been found in very large sizes such as the Star of Africa at 202 carats! Upon close inspection natural Black Diamond is often found to have visible inclusions featuring black graphite and or twisted crystal like structures.

Given the level of demand, most modern Black Diamonds are often irradiated natural diamonds, originally usually opaque and of potched color. The irradiation results in ‘black’ color that is actually intensely dark green. It is important to note that this treatment is perfectly safe and stones have no residual radiation. 

 

 

Black Diamonds are most often used as a contrast stone, teamed with Colourless Diamonds and or similarly ‘brilliant’ radiating materials.
